School Safety

Educational and care settings should be thoroughly cleaned at least once per day using disinfectant products.

Additional cleaning should be focused on frequently touched surfaces and shared spaces – door handles, handrails, chairs/arm rests, communal eating areas, sink and toilet facilities.

If equipment (for example science or IT apparatus) or desks are shared, they should be cleaned after each use.
All staff should have access to disinfectant products that are tested to the EN 14476 standard for virucidal efficacy.
Teaching staff should be encouraged to thoroughly clean and disinfect their individual work area before and after use each day.
Hand disinfectant should be provided for staff and students to use at entrance and exits and in communal and work areas.
